calling all RD LED people

I just installed my RD angel eyes and am suprised on how blue they look. I talked to Eric from PYSpeed and he said RD says they're suppose to have a blue tint. I'm confident in Eric's answer since he has great customer service but was just wondering what everyone else's RD impression was?

I used to have EFXs and they were bright white, these are extremely blue compared to those.

Had it for more then half a year.. pretty happy compared to the GP thunders I had..

If you want it to be less blue you might want to go with the ones that Bimmian is offering..

RD is a solid setup, we ran them for about 8 months on Jon's car and never had a problem. We just swapped them out for a similar setup that we found to have better color output. No errors either which was a plus.

Light meter is the best way but in general, a 4300k is a white/yellow, 6000k is a pure white and 8000k is a white with aqua color.

thanks for the pics. I don't really see a big difference as far as I can tell. Anyone else see a big difference? I think I'm just trying to tell myself your RDs are bluer but i don't know.

Is this the package that goes for circa $150 US? If so, what are the advantages of this over the options that seem to be available for less than $50 US? (Yes, I've searched. And, yes, I've read through the many, many long threads that discuss and compare options. Still lost, though.)

Also, is there a "white" foglight option that's been tried and tested?

Thanks.
